Will Fuller won a game for the Texans, and a little honor a few days later for the effort.

The Texans rookie wide receiver was named AFC special teams player of the week after helping his team beat the Titans with a 67-yard punt return.

Fuller also had seven catches for 81 yards and a touchdown, as he makes himself more a part of the offense as well.

The first-round pick from Notre Dame has proven a quick study, and he’s the fourth rookie in the last 15 seasons to score a punt return and receiving touchdown in the same game, joining Tavon Austin, T.Y. Hilton and Dez Bryant.
